Dear Havas: Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Havas Welcome

by Timothy Lyne, Executive Vice President/Partner, Urban Brokerage

Monday marked another major milestone in Millennium Partners’ project in the heart of Downtown Crossing. Havas Media/Arnold Worldwide celebrated its first day at the newly-renovated Burnham Building, amidst a welcoming party full of red balloons, a brass band and lots of DTX neighbors dropping by to say “hello.”

Here at the CBRE/New England Boston office, we have been enjoying watching the project advance and excitement build; steel frames turned into large glass window facades, classic signage adopted a new look, and the ‘hole in the ground’ disappeared below the rapidly growing Millennium Tower. Havas is a key catalyst in the transformation of the DTX neighborhood, jumpstarting the development by signing the first lease at Millennium’s proposed project. Continuing the momentum, AOL, Primark and Roche Bros. all signed on to move to the Burnham Building. The progress hasn’t stopped there, as the surrounding area continues to see new retail, restaurants, residential and corporate neighbors.
